Making Maya hot chocolate

Classes

We have been learning about the Ancient Maya within our history lessons. We have learnt how the history of chocolate can be traced to the ancient Maya, who used to drink a very bitter version of hot chocolate.
We decided to try and make it ourselves! We ground cacao nibs and then mixed with hot water, vanilla and honey to create a very rich but bitter drink. As you can see from the pictures, it was not to our liking!
